"I love garlic, and I love chicken cooked in the crock pot (so tender it falls right off of the bones), so this is a perfect combo of the two. I have some cooking in the crock pot right now, and I am longing for it to be done! :-) I never measure the spices, so these are estimates - please feel free to experiment. It is cooked with loads of garlic, so loving garlic is a plus!"

"I placed the chicken legs in a large ziplock with olive oil and minced garlic and gave them a nice coating, then sprinkled the spices on and added the broth. (Added a bit of basil as well.) I cooked it 4 hours on high, then broiled the chicken a few minutes on each side and it was perfect. The aroma it created while cooking was amazing. This is the only way I'll cook chicken in a crock pot from now on - it seems like every other time my chicken comes out dry with a weird aftertaste. I also made gravy out of the leftover juices to go over red mashed potatoes, which was great."
"This makes an easy, flavorful and tender chicken leg. So easy! I put my chicken legs under the broiler in my oven for a few minutes to make the skin crispier, which I think sealed the deal. Delicious!"
"This was very good! I made it this week and had enough for leftovers. I took the skin off the chicken before cooking and added a little basil (very little) in addition to the rosemary. I plan to share this recipe with my sister. Thank you for posting it!"
"Very tasty! The only change I'd make is to take the skin off of the chicken before cooking. Thanks!"
"My husband liked this but I didn't, my legs were overdone and falling off the bone. They were tender, which was great, but they were not very appetizing and in a pool of fat and broth. If I made this again I'd take the skin off the legs before cooking and cut the cooking time way down. Partly it may be because I have a relatively strong slow cooker."
"THis is a great recipe! Was ready in 5 hours on high! I definetely will be doing this again. I also made it with a nice side dish Recipe #1481513, Balsamic Tomatoe Couscous! This went sooo well together, thanks for the wonderful supper."
"Super Good, Super Easy! The seasonings were so good that two days later I put the same stuff on a nice big pork roast in the crockpot - also deeelicious!"
"We love this recipe. I just mix the spices and oil together and pour it on the chicken, and it comes out great. I've made this using boneless chicken thighs, and a combo of garlic scrapes and dried roasted garlic. It was a really easy meal, and delicious. Thanks!"
"First of all I want to say thank you for sharing this recipe.This is a good one and very forgiving when adapted. I used chicken tenders instead of legs and chopped garlic because that is what I had on hand. I also did not measure the spices just sprinkled them over the top of the pieces. Considering the italian seasonings I think next time I will dip the chicken in a good olive oil before seasoning and may even include some chunks of sweet italian sausage along side the chicken in the crockpot.Thanks again."
"What a great, fast and simple recipe. I used chicken thighs and had it cooking while I was at work for about 10.5 hours on low. The meat fell off the bone and my apartment smelled great. I would recommend this to anyone as a quick yummy meal.
Next time I would like to add some veggies!"
"I have never made (or eaten) chicken legs so I was looking for a recipe that incorporated other ingredients I love - GARLIC!
I made 8 legs because that's what was in the package and took the skin off. I used too much pepper (the measurements given were too little to coat all the legs) and I used an entire can of broth.
It smelled awesome and was very easy to prepare. The chicken was moist and fell right off the bone. My fiance didn't even bother to use a fork and ate 4 legs. He said I HAVE TO make this again - it was delicious.
Next time I'll tone down the red pepper and take the garlic out of the skin before I serve since it was a bit hard to swallow.
I'm afraid that if I take the garlic out of the skin before cooking it will just disintegrate - maybe I'll try half and half and see what happens."
"I've made this twice now and think it's pretty good! Made as directed both times, using fresh Rosemary for dried. The smell that radiates through the house is wonderful! My husband, however, isn't particularly wild about chicken or any meat still attached to the bone. Unfortunately, since it's just the two of us, I probably won't make it again (at least I got a 2nd time in). I certainly recommend it to others."
"The whole family enjoyed this. Even the picky seven year old. I used one whole bulb of garlic which was about 12 or 13 cloves then sprinkled some jarred, chopped garlic (to make it close to 20) on top after putting the seasoned chicken in the crock pot. Jacked the pot up to high for the first 90 min. then backed it down for the remaining amount of time. Cooked just shy of 8 hours. So yummy and moist. Not dried out at all. Thanks so very much for posting something NOT bbq/sweet & sour!"
"LOVE IT! Love garlic, the kids love chicken legs, and I love how easy this was. I used skin on chicken legs, and did not have the fat accumulation that other reviews talk about. I didn't have a lot of fresh garlic on hand, but used a mixture of fresh and powdered garlic. Would actually use more powdered garlic next time. I up'd the stock and the seasoning because I cooked about 15 legs, 8 hours on low. Love it, love it!"
"OMG, is this good. As others did, I put the herbs, oil, and chicken in a ziplock to coat. I added basil, oregano, and tarragon as well. 5 legs were cooked on high for 3 hours, then 2.5 hours on low. They came out perfect. I saved the juice and several garlic cloves to pour over whole wheat pasta-supremo! Thanks for sharing."
"I made this a while back and am just now getting around to rating it. We absolutely love garlic and this was "Da Bomb!" Very easy, used all fresh ingredents and we make this often. Thank you for sharing!"
"I LOVE GARLIC & LOVE LOVE THIS! I didn't have chicken legs so I used boneless skinless thighs and OMG it is fantastic! Now, this is the only way I will eat thighs! Great dish, thanks for sharing!!!"
"Overall this was a good chicken dish. It definately made the house smell better than the chicken tasted. Not so much that I'll be rushing to make it again, but it was a good one time try. If I did it again I would definately use chicken breasts!"
"This turned out well. I am still getting used to that wet-but-dried-out texture that meat gets in the crockpot, but aside from that, I actually really enjoyed this. The flavor was really intense. We used 13 legs and doubled the spice mixture, but used the original amount of garlic and broth. (Originally reviewed June 14, 2010. Edited to correct error that altered the meaning.)"
"This was definitely garlicky! I only used 3 legs and followed the seasonings exactly. Thanks for another way to use up all the garlic I have sometimes."
